Ignoring the appalling summer weather it has just about been possible to dodge torrential rain and have short walks. The garden is looking bedraggled. Its the wildlife I feel for though – how is it surviving? Its the Big Butterfly Count at the moment but i truth I have literally seen a handful of butterflies all summer. Not so many years ago I couldn’t count them they were so numerous on the buddleia.
Frank and Kate came over for a game of cards. I was trounced – as always. but it doesn’t matter. Its great fun. Hector does a lot better – and really gets tuck into it.
Chris and Fiona came for a Saturday visit. Wonderful. As always.
Their company makes me happy. Hector had put together a selection of beers and they brought some goodies too. I made a risotto for dinner.
The following day I took Rosie and the camera and had a walk down to where they were doing some MotoX. The noise so redolent of cross wasps!
I isn’t get as close to the action as I’d have liked (fields full of young boisterous calves) but did get this shot that pleased me….
